* In ''{{Rift}}'', paladin is a warrior "[[StoneWall defensive soul]]" with some WhiteMagic abilities. While [[SeekerArchetype Amardis Mathos]] (the original in-universe paladin) certainly fit the usual profile, it's implied that not every paladin does.

* The Paladins in ''VideoGame/QuestForGlory'' differ from the standard version trope in that they are openly NeutralGood from the start; the Paladin mentor Rakeesh defied the rule of law in his homeland because he thought it was narrow-minded and would only cause a needless war. The Paladin class is unlocked at the end of ''VideoGame/QuestForGloryII'' if you finish the game with high enough [[KarmaMeter Honor]], and is effectively a Fighter with nice bonuses like HealingHands, protection from evil, and [[MySignificanceSenseIsTingling a danger sense]], plus some optional quests that go above and beyond the main plot. In ''QuestForGloryIII'' he becomes an outright MagicKnight, when unlocking the Heal ability adds the Magic skill.

* The OgreBattle series of games commonly have Paladins as a class. Then tend to be among the strongest Melee fighters, with minor healing magic.

* The Paladin class of the ''VideoGame/FireEmblem'' series is, for the most part, this InNameOnly; it has nothing to do with holy warriors and cannot use any sort of magic beyond that afforded by [[FlamingSword magic]] [[SwordBeam weapons]]. Members of the class (allied ones, anyway) are generally upstanding, moral, and loyal knights, but are not holy by any means. The exception is the Jugdral canon, wherein the female variant of Paladins can wield healing staves.

** Pretty much all additions of ''Dungeons & Dragons'' also have an [[InvertedTrope inversion]] of the paladin trope; some variation of an "anti-paladin", a mirror image of the paladin that replaces "good" with "evil" and "holy" with "unholy". 3e had a PrestigeClass called the Blackguard (which could include fallen paladins) as well as the Paladin of Tyranny (LawfulEvil) and the Paladin of Slaughter (ChaoticEvil). ''Pathfinder'' went back to using straight anti-paladins, and 4th edition makes the issue moot by allowing your paladin to be dedicated to any extreme alignment. 5th Edition locks 4ths alignment-freedom, but also adds the Oathbreaker Paladin, an always evil option for Paladins who have forsaken their oath.
